Waving his hands about, he continued, “And we’re just like ‘Ah it’s sounds Boris or whatever’ [meaning: ‘oh it’s only Boris, don’t worry about it’].
“It’s not cool, it’s not acceptable to have a bias.”
Quickly responding, Jo hit back: “There’s not a racist bone in his body!”, recieving a large burst of applause.
